San Donato in Collina
While the town is small, it does have food shops, coffee bars and a couple of restaurants. This being the Chianti wine zone, there are also some wineries in the area that are worth seeking out.
The countryside is made up of wooded hills, intersected by grape vines and olive groves. The Bosco di Fonte Santa is a great place for a walk in the woods, with paths leading through the forest past springs of water; it's a cool spot in the heat of summer. There were archeological finds here, too.

The town hosts an annual festival dedicated to their specialty food, frittelle, which draws hungry fans from all over the area to eat the fried fritters.
